Let ‘em fly: 2019 Mullet toss opens at the Flora-Bama – al.com

April 27, 2019
“If you’re out here and you’re not having fun, you better go and see your psychiatrist on Monday,” Joe Gilchrist advised onlookers at the 2019 Interstate Mullet Toss on Friday. This was late in the afternoon, after hours and hours of festivities in which hundreds of people lined up to take their turns flinging mullet -- a small, otherwise innocuous fish -- from Florida into Alabama, or at least in the direction of it. The throws ranged from three feet to 116, and not all the ultra-short ones were the work of small children. The state line wasn't marked on the strip of beach sand where the event is held, but one likes to think the longer shots lived up to the event's name.
